I love the lights, the decorations, the baking but mostly spending time with my family.
Our tradition is putting up the tree 12 days before Christmas.
Today I broke tradition…we put it up today.
The girls were happy, as they hate to wait so long to put up the tree.
But I like to wait…I like the anticipation of it.
So today I thought I would share with you some of my favourite tree ornaments.
As most of you know already, I love the deep colour red and I love hearts :)
This ornament is just so pretty with gold added to the red.
Another heart shaped ornament :)
I love how the light shines through this glass ornament.
There are tiny dots of glass that forms this ornament.
We use to have a Christmas store here in town.
It was located in a heritage house, the store name was called Coo's.
I am naturally a thrifty person, I usually just browse and drool in these types of stores... but when I saw these 3 little angels I just had to get them….one for each of my girls.
We changed things up a bit this year.
I usually string gold beads on the tree.
But Kristy did the tree by herself this year, and I am a bit of a perfectionist with the beads being perfectly spaced, so we went with ribbon this year.
I have to say it was a lot quicker.
Thank you Kristy :)
Even Luna joined in, teehee.
Kristy would have freaked out if she saw Luna rolling around and hiding under the tree skirt, but Kristy was at work.
Look at those big innocent eyes, how could anyone get mad at her ;)
Onto My Day:
Kristy and I brought up all the boxes to decorate the house.
Drove Kristy to work, then came home and decorated the outside of the house…I even cut some cedar branches and added them to my milking cans I have on display outside :)
I tidied up the house and put on my new Christmas table cloth and placemats out.
I then unpacked my Winter village but realized I need new snow batting, so will have to hold off on that until tomorrow.
I can sure get a lot accomplished when I'm not on the computer all day ;)
I hope you all had a very Creative Thursday :)
By the way, the ornament photos and the last photo of Luna were taken with my "big boy" camera, the other 2 were from my iPhone….which I usually use for all of my photos :)
